Baseema and Hayam are excited to present-
Rekindling Roots- From Boston to Cairo
Join us for an afternoon of bellydance history, music, travel, and culture. This is a fundraiser for the documentary "Aziza" and all proceeds go towards the documentary!

We have a fun afternoon of presentations including-

Tales from the "Nightclub Era" of Boston Belly Dance-Alizah Afet

The 1950s to the 80s was the "Nightclub Era" of belly dance. During this time you could see belly dancing and live music seven nights a week. Because of the similarities in culture and cuisine, the Armenian, Greek, and Lebanese communities mingled at each others' clubs and restaurants. Boston became a melting pot of eastern Mediterranean music and, ironically - considering its puritanical reputation - the city became a national hot spot for belly dance. 

In this presentation, Amy Smith will share highlights of her research on Boston's belly dance history, as well as the "Aziza!" documentary project. 

The Music: A Glimpse Through the Eye of Riena

Oriental dance is inherent with live music. An authentic dancer intrinsically responds with, embodies, and personifies the music’s presence; illustrating its story, mood, and emotions through movement. This conceptual workshop will help you illustrate Oriental/Middle Eastern music and think about where to connect the dots in your dance.

Bring water, a journal, and pens or markers of different colors.

Walk like an Egyptian....Tourist!-Namid

Join Karen as she shares highlights from her trips to Egypt. Learn about the sights, sounds, smells and flavors she experienced as she explored this historic country from north to south along the beautiful and majestic Nile River. Meet some of the people who stole her heart – and find out why she wants to go back again (and again)!

Event will be held in The Dance Space, located in the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester. 
100 Barber Ave, Worcester MA
Event is FREE! 
Please register by emailing Hayam at

Event will be followed by an evening of bellydance performances starting at 7pm, stay tuned for details!
